Great Suit It is the only short john on the market that isn't a back zip!!! I would know I did a lot of research and I used to work at a local surf shop. This is great it has Velcro and a snap on the shoulder, which opens for easy access and easy on and off. Who would want a back zip short john? it ads weight and is gross looking. This Wetsuit with its innovative entry system is great! The color is cool brownish gray stripe with mostly black Fit is pretty true to the size chart, but you may want to go up a size if you're on the border. Super stretchy, unlike other companies, which make their spring suits/ short johns out of low grade neoprene. Quiksilver, you guys did a good job on this suit!!!
